Shamrock Rovers have confirmed the signings of Danny Mandroiu and Sean Gannon.

They're Stephen Bradley's third and fourth signings of the week, following the arrivals of defensive duo Sean Hoare and Chris McCann.

Mandroiu departs Rovers' bitter rivals Bohemians, where he'd fallen out of favour during the 2020 campaign.

While Gannon arrives at Tallaght Stadium having spent the past seven seasons at Dundalk. There the right-back won five SSE Airtricity Premier Division titles and a trio of FAI Cups.

Gannon is also a veteran of Dundalk's two Europa League groups stage runs.

The 29-year old, however, had found his place at Dundalk come under threat under Filippo Giovagnoli, with the Italian often preferring to play three at the back.

Gannon rejoins a club for whom he made 16 appearances across the 2011 and 2012 seasons before leaving for St. Pat's.

Bradley said of Mandroiu's arrival, "Danny is very creative. He can play with both feet very comfortably.

He’s big, athletic and an all-round really clever player. He’s a really good age and fits what we do.

"There’s so much more to his game than his goals, there’s so much potential in Danny and it’s up to us and him that we try and get that out of him, to take him to the next level.

"I think he wants to go and do his talking on the pitch now. He’s really keen to get started with us and get working and we’re really looking forward to working with him.

"His profile fits what we do and he’s at a stage now of his career where he needs to step up to the next level, compete and win things.

"He knows at this club that he can do that and I think he’s ready to work, get his head down and show people what a good player he is."
